Canadian dreampoppers Dizzy deal a goodbye to 'Joshua'

Words: Ellie Ward

Canadian dreampop four-piece Dizzy from Oshawa, Ontario, follow 'Pretty Thing' from March, with new single 'Joshua', released tomorrow (May 4) via Royal Mountain / Communion.

The Spencer brothers - Charlie, Alex, and Mackenzie - with vocalist friend Katie Munshaw, offer another in their trademark line of intimacy, indifference and heartbreak.

Understated textures of guitar plucks back breakup lyrics, “Joshua’s a gemini/ He broke my heart/ Wish I was too preoccupied to fall apart” around Munshaw's vocal vulnerability in this "goodbye to someone who left my life unexpectedly. There’s a constant buzzing in your entire body after a relationship ends without closure. At first it chatters through to your teeth and bones, but eventually it dwindles down to a soft humming in a secret hiding spot in your heart. Coping. This song is “Goodbye, and thank you. I hope you’re well. This is what’s happened since you disappeared on me.”
